    Goldwater was a fiscal conservative who hid his social moderate side behind political expediency. He recanted the socially conservative positions he held as a politician (when, of course, it didn't matter and he was about to die).

    Not even that. It was the racially (somewhat more) tolerant north vs. the pig-ignorant south. The South had (and still has) a real hard-on for the Civil War, and were virulently anti-Republican because that was Lincoln's party, and Lincoln went in and kicked their asses and made them start treating black people like people. IMHO, most of the South's opposition to civil rights was based purely on resentment of the north for beating their asses so bad.

    No, just a democrat. He is of note historically due his length of tenor and assassination attempt, though his opposition to Nixons affirmative action measures was reprehensible.

    LOL, believe me I know, I lived in Alabama for five years.

    I still think it was their conservatism that drove their hatred. Fear of something as radically different as the civil rights act, IMO, was too much for the far ring wing social conservatives to handle.

    No doubt-those divides still exist-see the moderate conservative divide in the GOP and the liberal/moderate divide in the Democrat party. Though I must say, "conservative democrats" are so rare here in california that I've never met one.

    Goldwater and Reagan actually had much in common. Both knew how democrats could be.

    What's wrong with using the word "tar"? You need a dictionary?

    I lay this right at the feet of the leftist, you guys own this. She essentially covers all your talking points from victimization too xenophobia. This is the fruits of your labor.
